Assessment method

Many instructional lectures have been replaced by active learning activities such as collaborative, problem-solving or enquiry-based learning workshops and tutorials. The assessment strategy has been designed to help students to learn and prepare them for employment, rather than just a tool to measure their learning. The assessment methods include exams, coursework and practical/laboratory works.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

T Levels T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other further education courses. T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher education and/or apprenticeships. Students who study T Level spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action. T Levels are the equivalent to three A levels and we recognise the UCAS tariff points they attract in line with other qualifications that aid progression to higher education.
